DNA Saturdays and a few other theme topics tend to be feast or famine. I find a lot or I find very little in a given week. Earlier today, I was looking for a good DNA Saturdays topic. I didn’t find anything too exciting. End result, I highlighted a DNA company that isn’t as well known as the larger DNA companies – YSEQ.net – DNA Saturdays August 8, 2020. I draw on the monthly DNA post – Current August 2020 DNA Companies August 1, 2020 for possible companies. I may also draw on DNA companies in my DNA page – https://upsdownsfamilyhistory.wordpress.com/links/. Many of these DNA companies are unknown outside of a small group of people like myself who study DNA companies.
I think it’s important to highlight DNA companies that aren’t the bigger DNA companies: AncestryDNA, 23andMe, MyHeritageDNA, FamilyTree DNA (FTDNA), and LivingDNA/FindMyPastDNA. There are times where a smaller company may meet a need that a larger company doesn’t address. That’s true not only in DNA, but in other businesses as well. For example, if you want pet DNA, none of the bigger DNA companies offers it at this point. I was amazed at how many types of animals you can get DNA testing when I did the research a few years ago.
The same goes when I do the state theme posts as I try to find things that aren’t known outside of the locals in an area. I do something similar when I re-blog or share a post or vlogger video.
